Fee & Payment

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cancellation policy:

If you need to reschedule or cancel our meeting time, please inform me via phone, text, or email within 2 days of our scheduled time to respect both of our time and our relationship. If you cannot attend our scheduled appointment for whatever reason with less than 2 days notice, you will be charged for the session, and a session via phone or video conference at our originally scheduled time will be available for you.

 

Insurance:

  • I only accept private pay.

  • Upon request, I can provide a superbill for you to use with your insurance provider. 

 

Benefits of private pay:

  • The client determines the length and type of counseling that best suits their needs.

  • Confidentiality remains between you and your chosen mental health care provider.

 

Concerns for using insurance:    

  • Insurance providers have the authority to:

-determine the number of sessions they will cover.  

-determine the limits of which situations warrant coverage.

-determine what forms of treatment are covered by their policy.

-require a diagnosis that stays on your permanent health record to receive coverage.

  • Insurance providers are a for profit business, not the mental health professional you sought & hired to support your personal well-being.

  • Counselors relying solely on insurance receive significantly reduced rates and must carry caseloads at least 50% larger to earn the same livable income. 

  • Increased caseloads perpetuate counselor burnout and may reduce the quality of care for you and other clients.
